God's enemy fights as hard as ever to win the hearts and loyalties of our children-and he has added all kinds of high-tech tools to his arsenal. To resist his strategies, they first need to understand them and have in their hearts the Word of God. That's why God told His people long ago to base all conversation on His unchanging truth and to teach His truth diligently to our children (see Deuteronomy 6:6-7). Everything we say must reflect the reality of God-His love, His omnipotence, His promises, and His warnings. To prove that our God is far greater than the plethora of alternatives that are out there, our lives must demonstrate faith in the midst of difficulties and His triumph in the midst of turmoil. This is possible, not by our own strength, but by His power and grace. Then, seeing His greatness, children learn to trust His promises.

2017 Rick Warren Update on Purpose Driven Life sales claim
by James Sundquist, 9/12/17 

I received an email from Os Guinness (Guinness Book of Records).  He spoke at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church.  He said he teased Rick Warren that the Guinness Book of Records sold more books than Warren's PDL Book.  He would know.  But Guinness own site states 138 million sold. They sell 2.5 million per year.  So in 2012 that figure would have been about 123 million, when Warren had sold 32 million, when they made their claim they attributed to PW.   That is about 7 times Warren's sales (both are nonfiction).  But even 123 million does not make the top ten.
Diligence in Holiness
by James Jacob Prasch, 1999 Moriel Ministries

Joshua 7:23-26: And they took them from inside the tent and brought them to Joshua and to all the sons of Israel, and they poured them out before the LORD.  Then Joshua and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, the silver, the mantle, the bar of gold, his sons, his daughters, his oxen, his donkeys, his sheep, his tent and all that belonged to him; and they brought them up to the valley of Achor.  [Now, in the Bible, Achor means a place of calamity, something like that, trouble, calamitous-type trouble.]   And Joshua said, "Why have you troubled us? The LORD will trouble you this day." And all Israel stoned them with stones; and they burned them with fire after they had stoned them with stones.  And they raised over him a great heap of stones that stands to this day, and the LORD turned from the fierceness of His anger. Therefore the name of that place has been called the valley of Achor to this day.  This stuff was concealed it says, buried in his tent.  How spiritual I am is not the guy you see up here talking to you, it is the guy who goes home and how is it that he treats his wife and his children? What is buried in my tent?  What is wrong with me?  What is buried in my tent that should not be there?  What is buried in your tent that should not be there?  Now, some things could be wrong for one person and not another.  If you have a glass of wine with dinner, I don't care about that but for somebody else that can be a sin.  But there are some things that are wrong for all of us, things under the ban, things under the ban that can put us in the fire.  It says that in Ephesians, warning Christians, it says no fornicator shall enter the Kingdom, no liar, no thief.  Some people tend to confuse holiness with legalism.  David Wilkerson is not perfect but he has the idea that Christians should not have TVs.  I tell you what, we would be better off with no TVs than Christian Channel Europe or TBN.  I am not saying having a TV is wrong but what is on there now?  And the Christian stuff is worse and more of a reproach than the world.  I can take Channel 4 with all of its smut; it is less dishonoring to the name of Christ than Christian Channel Europe because they are not doing it in the name of Jesus.  What is in the tent?  
Witnessing to someone in a cult
by Mike Oppenheimer, 9/19/17 Let Us Reason

Cults have both a theological and sociological drawing on people. More join because of the sociological aspect and learn to accept the theological. Before you address their doctrine, find why they have joined. Was it friends, to make friends, to be with people with a cause? In the conversation ask them if their joining strained their relationship with their family and other friends not in their religious group. Once you have discussed this you than can more easily address the differences in doctrine they are being taught. Always stay on the core issues and do not speak on more than three points. Usually one or two are better. Take the most important difference to be discussed first. If they cannot see them than there is no reason to move on to other topics. Even if you disagree and the person does not see what you are saying assure them that they can contact you at any time and you will be there for them. What you most likely will encounter are those who think that their working for God completes or merits salvation. They may talk about grace but will have not experience faith through grace that results in their salvation.
